    Younès Rahmoun was born in 1975 in Tetouan, Morocco, where he lives and works. Manzil-Markib is built around two recurrent themes in his work that take on a profound meaning: form is simply the contour of the soul. The sculpture comprises a structure in the form of a house and a small boat in polished copper. A symbol of physical travel, the stylized boat - recalling the lotus meditation position - also signifies an inner voyage. Underpinning these themes lies a spiritual approach to the world and the artist’s childhood. He wanted to be a great traveller in search of an ideal place. All of his work strives to reveal that “if this paradise exists, it is found somewhere inside me, in my country, my city, this small shelter, here, somewhere in my heart.”
